Just a super quick post to note that sign-up for the SewBrum merit badge swap will close on Wednesday 30th September. After this date you’re still very welcome to sign-up for the meet-up itself, but I won’t be pairing further badge swap partners, to ensure there is enough time to make the badges before the event.
If you’d like to join in, sign-up here, and find crafty merit badge inspiration here. Anyone can join this swap, you don’t need to be attending the meet-up in October or have a blog to join in.
I’ve also updated the list of prizes for the raffle we’ll hold on the day of the meet-up (with all money raised being donated to the Made Up Initiative) to include:
♥ Tickets to Crafts for Christmas, Stitching, Sewing & Hobbycrafts and Art Materials Live at the NEC, Birmingham. These pairs of tickets can be used any day of the show, which takes place 5-8 November 2015. In addition to lots of lovely stalls, the show will feature the world’s largest knitted Christmas tree (25 feet tall!) created by Allison Murray and 700 volunteer knitters, and a knitted Gingerbread Grotto, which includes a knitted bed, dresser, chairs, pictures, table and stove. 500 knitters around the world contributed to create the grotto to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.
♥ Pompom Quarterly Summer 2014 issue I’m a Pompom subscriber and big fan. The donated issue includes 7 knitting/crochet patterns (including shawls, tops and a blanket), plus a tee sewing pattern.
